Dalit musical instrument

This student-curated exhibit introduces visitors to the South Asian caste system and the place of Dalits (formerly known as untouchables) in it.  Visitors will see objects traditionally associated with Dalit occupation and learn about Dalit views on dignity and their rights.  The exhibit not only introduces social situations unfamiliar to most American but also encourages interaction with the Dalit experiences and views of what constitutes dignity.
